Cypress Springs Elementary Philosophy

Cypress Springs Elementary School seeks to provide educational experiences which prepare each child to live in an ever-changing world.  The faculty of Cypress Springs believes that it is through education received at school, as well as guidance received at home, that a child grows.  Cypress Springs accepts the challenge to assist each child to achieve his fullest potential—personally, socially, morally, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.  There must be a shared effort between the home and the school in helping the child reach his or her full potential in all these areas.  The student should be guided in developing a positive self-concept and a sense of personal worth.  He or she should be encouraged to take personal responsibility for his or her learning and actions.
